“Headliner Green Haze whipped the wild Saturday night funsters in to an uncontrollable frenzy, replicating the Green Day sound to such a tee that you’d have been hard pressed to differentiate between the originals and the covers. All of the band’s usual suspect punk hits were nailed with impeccable, high octane, relentless accuracy” – 365Bristol.com
“WOW what a band, these guys had it all, the sound, the look and bundles of enthusiasm. For two whole hours they smashed out hit after hit, hardly stopping to take breath!” – The Patriot
